  1. LB log - 20130731

    My wife is going to have one of her friends come in from another country at the end of August. In light of this, we're making plans of things to do and I have now made a major purchase to solidify a few days of things to do. We'll be going to see a baseball game in Detroit. On Saturday night. The promotion is Motown Night. We'll also be staying overnight at the Book Cadillac hotel after the game. The plan is to keep a tight itinerary so that there's a minimum amount of time to be there without some ...

    As I sit here at the keyboard now, one thing I come to realize is that my new job doesn't really foster much for interesting news to mention here. While on carts, I got to see people get angry at each other and get in accidents, talk with old people as I helped them, endured coworkers being lazy if not completely absent, and so on. In the course of today's work, I had a few stretches of at least an hour where I was alone in a backroom aisle and doing some scanning. Barring unremarkable and forgettable ...

    The first day on the new job went about as I envisioned it would go, which is to say that I spent some time pushing carts when things got hectic. I helped out for only about ninety minutes, so it could have been worse. There were three cart pushers scheduled today. One new guy from 7AM to 4PM, and he was there on time. The second new guy was on the paper as 8AM to 5PM, and he didn't show up until 2PM, saying that he thought he was scheduled from 2PM to 11PM. The third person was scheduled from 4PM ...

    Last day of carts. Bring on the new job. Also, this first day of waking up early to do exercise immediately in the morning seems to have worked. I hope I can manage to do this on a regular basis.

    Latest reading of North America by Trollope has led me to the portion of discussing the United States Constitution. The suspension of habeas corpus at the start of the Civil War was, understandably, a situation of extreme importance and subject to a high amount of debate, and one interesting thing which Trollope states about it, in reference as it being a breach of the Constitution, is this:
    And the effect of this breach of the constitution at the present day has been very disastrous. It

    At approximately 6PM, I had received a note from the IRS, and it says that my 2012 Form 1120 submissions were accepted. So that is finally concluded. I wish the accomplishment gave me more of a sense of satisfaction, because when I first read the mail, my initial reaction was an indifferent scoff. The last few weeks of correspondence has been extremely slow and the latest corrective actions which they wanted me to take were not given proper resolution. Did they see that the subsidiary return headers ...

    The latest reading in the Trollope North America book has brought me to read about Cairo, Illinois, and as I have done many times before in the process of reading this book, I have taken the time to look up the history and surroundings (Google Street View) of the area today. I can't say that I recall ever reading about the amount of racial conflict that has basically completely killed the entire town. People say the same thing about Detroit, and the decline of that city is indeed exceptional by ...

    The wagon slowed to a gentle stop within a dozen feet in front of the cabin. Daron kept his stance rigid and fists clenched as he stood at the window and watched the approach. He was expecting them to return, but the approach of carriages still caused him to jolt awake from sleep. He finally relaxed, though only slightly, as he came to recognize the men at the seat. Richard, the taller one, immediately came down from the cab and went to remove ...

    Found myself making my way to bed entirely too late. Wake up did feel a bit labored. You know it's a slow news day when I have this and little else to say.

    Oh, one small interesting fact that I came across in my reading is discovering that before the title went to Chicago, it was Cincinnati which was the hog butcher capital of the country. Porkopolis is the word I've seen referenced.

    I'm tired and distracted and I need to get going.

    I met both of the new cart pushers today, and had the privilege of working with them instead of waiting for them to be done with their training regiment. Both of them are closer to 30 than 20 (in my estimation at least) and have stated that they are looking to get Bachelor's degrees in Business Administration. One wants to work in an IT firm with it, the other wants to work with his Dad as an administrator for a mail delivery facility. The latter of the two has also told me that he has issues concerning ...

    Today was rather boring in terms of news to report. Woke up, exercised, had lunch with my wife, tended to the plants at my parent's house while they're on their vacation, returned, picked wife up from work, played some GTA5, played some songs, wrote this, and that's about it.

    I'll get to meet the newly hired cartmen tomorrow. Here's hoping that I can have some kind of good influence on them before they make the seemingly inevitable transformation into lazy shits.

    My new phone is a bit strange in that the customization seems to be limited compared to other phones. I can't seem to change the initial (home?) screen image, I can't seem to set any kind of background (not that it would be very visible most of the time), and I can't set a custom tone to use for incoming text notification. The last of these is the most baffling to me. Ultimately, though, I can't say I'm particularly bothered by it considering how little use I get out of phones now and I don't foresee ...

    Beyond getting GTA5 today, I have acquired a new phone and have taken a bold step into the current era of technology. It's a Nokia Lumia 521 or something. I was mostly interested in having one so that I could have easier access to online content like the online kanji dictionary (jisho.org) so that I could merely bring that with me to work rather than have a physical kanji dictionary taking up weight in my backpack (and that's only the standard joyo kanji book, which means that there's already been ...

    I'm pretty sure that one of my coworker cart pushers was fired today. The reason I say "pretty sure" is because there was an incident regarding a missing Ipad which he managed to obtain and had in his car when he was encountered about it by the police. He wasn't handcuffed, and the police ultimately did not arrest him or seem to file any charge against him. Immediately afterward, though, he was summoned to the manager's office and returned to say that nothing happened, but then quickly ...

    Today is my sister's birthday, so I paid a visit to see her. My wife and her mother had the foresight to bake some chocolate chip cookies to bring over for a gift, which is a much better food to give than anything from a local restaurant that I could think of getting along the way. My sister will be resuming her job in a week, and from there the process of having my mother watch the child while my sister works will get underway. All the preparations are set, so we'll have to see how it actually ...
